Even though is was very windy and fishing conditions were challenging, we had a great time with Captain Rick and Jonathan. We caught some very nice bull reds, and had fun fishing with the smaller rod. We definitely plan to go again.

Bobby & Jonathan were PHENOMENAL. We took the 6 hour shark hunt and they both went above and beyond to catch everything we could. We had a group of 7 from age 5 to 30. They made sure we ALL had a blast. 1000/10. Absolutely recommend and must do again.

Awesome experience as always. Great Captain and knowledgeable deck hand. He pulled a jelly fish out of the ocean so my 6 year old nephew could get a closer look.

We did a 1/2 day trip with Captain Todd and Jonathan and they worked hard to get us on the fish and they delivered. They took care of everything. We ended up taking our fish to the Huli Huli Hut at their recommendation and they prepared our fish three different ways with loads of sides. Excellent recommendation by the crew. Highly recommend.

Captain Houston was always quick to respond to text and emails as was captain experiences. However we had Captain Bobby and his deck hand "Boots". Two super good guys and their handling of our excursion only made us want to go again. Our family was 10 and half us spent most of our four hour trip nauseated from the rough waters and these two gentlemen were very attentive to the people. We appreciated this greatly. We would overwhelmingly recommend this trip and crew. Boots cleaned our catch and recommended a restaurant that would cook it for us We took his advice and were not disappointed. They helped us have a great family vacation highlighted by this fishing trip.
Thanks guys!!

Caputn Cody and his deckhand Donny were great. He was also very flexible due to weather and we were able to reschedule it for the next day. It took us a while to find a good spot, but once we did, they were both very helpful. Will recommend using him and would be using him again if able in the future
